FDNY911 Thanks 2in10. I forgot I also have purple bamboo. Maybe I'll throw that in the background. It's actually mixed in somewhere with the Rotala.

2in10 Gorgeous tank, love the driftwood design

I think you should keep it where it is. Maybe find another plant species for behind the left driftwood. Maybe Limnophila aromatica?

FDNY911 Thanks Boxxer,

Unfortunately I havent gotten around to building the stand or the LED fixture. I have everything but I have been really busy to get anything done =(

However, I did use the new aquasoil to cap the old as 2 I had and I LOVE IT! No ammonia spike, no dust, no clouding and Everything is growing beautifully! They actually made it great this time.

Hopefully sometime this month I will be able to get started on those 2 projects.

Thanks again everyone

Plant list is only Rotala Macandra, Blyxa J, HC and a couple of Styrogen Repens.

I currently have 8 Ottos, 3-5 RCS and 3 amanos. I want to get more Amanos, they really are awesome.

I have to constantly trim the R. Macandra, the tips reach out of the water and turn into a ridiculous red, I mean RED. I haven't decided yet on wether or not I am going to put it behind the left side Driftwood. Not sure how it will look though. What do you guys think? The R.macandra is like 4 inches deep. It's kind of too much.

Love the Drift wood too!!! It sure has taken off now you have had some time for it to settle in!!! Does the tank now have the LED lighting??? How about the New Aqua soil, how did You like it???

radioman I love the empty part under the driftwood. I always love to fill everything with plants but that space just looks good.
